Trial Lawyers are one of the largest contributors to the Democrat Party and they will not allow tort reform.

Yes. The hospital that I own spends more on malpractice insurance than anything else too. FACT.

It's not like tort reform only accounts for like a fraction of 1 percent of our medical costs or anything. It's not like report after report says that tort reform won't do anyone except the insurance companies any good either. FACT.

Because the trial lawyers association contributes lots of money to Democrats.

The debate is on health *insurance* industry, not the health care industry.

Because the Democrat health reform bill is not about lowering costs. And many Dem contributors are lawyers who put their kids thru college by suing people.

Because the health care reform bill being proposed is not about fixing health care in this country. Simply put, it's a power grab.
